Mr. Borden "Bordie" McCloskey
February 19, 1946 - June 2, 2020

It is with deep sadness that we share that Mr. Borden "Bordie" McCloskey joined the Church Triumphant Tuesday, June 2, 2020. Bordie was a well loved and faithful member of Avondale for over 40 years! Due to our current circumstances concerning the pandemic, a celebration of life is postponed and arrangements will be shared at a later date. obituary
It is with deep sadness that we share that Jacqueline Howells, our Financial Coordinator, lost her father, Jack Bearman, last Thursday, June 4. This was unexpected and a shock to her, her mother and two sisters. Jacqueline is currently in Arizona, where her parents live. They will have a small family service Friday and a larger celebration of his life later, once family and friends can be together.

Avondale Children's Center
We are at the beginning of our third week back and things are running better than expected! The kids are great about wearing their masks and they are really enjoying being back with their friends.
We will be holding a Graduation ceremony for our Pre-K grads but are waiting for more info regarding Phase 3 before we make any solid plans. We will keep everyone updated!
Meet our masked Owls and our unmasked Owls from our 3 year old classroom!
The Confirmation class of 2020 has been diving deep into the tenants of our faith, meeting with Reverend Jim and also each with their mentors on this journey of discovery and growth. They will soon be ready to take the next step and join the church. We congratulate them for all of their hard work and dedication. We will look forward to celebrating with them when we can all worship together in person.
